Antique nautical items and old boat collectibles all share one trait: they give their owner a direct link to the noble old boat and ship traditions of the ages.
For thousands of years, humans have been taking to the water for exploration, commerce, relaxation, hunting and warfare. Of course, the experience has been modified by technology these days, but at their cores sailing and boating are the same as they have always been. For this reason, tradition has a stronger role on the sea than in many other pursuits, a fact also due to the fact that the ingenuity that has gone into boating and sailing over the centuries still strikes a chord in the human spirit — a chord of adventure and exploration; of acting, by necessity, in harmony with nature.
What the old boat enthusiasts and practitioners of centuries past have in common with modern day mariners (and even casual day trippers) is an attraction to the serenity of the ocean — an abiding respect for the rumbling powers of the deep sea and a passion for forces of weather and current. One must work with these forces rather than against them.
